, if we are to have ballistic missile defense coverage in asia and america would like to cover their asian allies, there is the question of china. both russia and the united states, not jointly but in bilateral format in parallel should start serious consultations with china on ballistic missile defense so that china does not become an obstacle to russian-american cooperation. we would have to persuade that ballistic missile defense is not against china. america has to be clear on some important issues. is china entitled for its own nuclear deterrent against united states, like russia? is china and titled to treatment -- entitled for treatment as a superpower? is china entitled to some information and consultations like the united states are doing with russia on ballistic missile defense in the far east? , providing information, talking about chinese concerns, trying to find solutions like it was between the united states and russia so that they are involved. that is important. my first recommendation to russian government would be to start being very practical and technical on ballistic m

states of america can do. and we are not going to impose any kind of peace upon palestine and israel and that is that. it was a surprising, considering what we've been reading, chris, about the possibility of the united states might lay out what we think are the basic outlines of a just and lasting peace. my guess today would be we're not going to do it. >> the question i guess is for the israelis to answer. they have to answer it in the first instance before we get to it. we could suggest an alternative over there. mr. mayor, it seems to me this is the challenge. israel has to unite the moderate arab world such as it is. jordan, the saudis, the egypt n egyptians, all the emirates. it has to get them on their side against iran in terms of iran's nuclear threat. they can't do that step unless they can find something over palestine, right? so the irony is they may have to give something in terms of the middle east situation in order to build the kind of armada, if you will, diplomatic armada they need to shut down the iranian nuclear threat. do you think that's a tradeoff they're thin
about russia and america moving towards ratification but some kind of future vision, one thing you talked about were some things that american could do that would be helpful but i thought there was a need, on the other hand, for russia itself to take some vision with that perhaps with the signing of a tree or some more calls for both either together or initiating a vision of where you want to go in productions and for the relationship itself. what could russia to do that would both help the ratification here to provide that vision and make the russian elite see it as a positive? >> request and, let's take the one in the back. >> my question is somewhat parallel. as usual, your statement was important of and perceptive. i had the feeling that if you have given that statement before the u.s. armed services committee or foreign relations committee that would not have helped ratification on the american side if. you were asked to testify in washington for ratification, not on the basis of what the obama administration will argue but in terms of what would you would argue is in the in

[laughter] there was a time when the navy only had three commissioned brigades, the united states, the consolation, and the constitution. we had a tiny navy, and one which had never fought. since the days of the revolution, the navy had been pretty quiet, although you could make a pretty good argument that the reason america changed the articles of confederation to the constitution that we have today it was because we could not build a national and navy to deal with the barbary pirates. that was one reason for the changes in philadelphia in 1789. in 1798, then secretary of the navy had three ships, a few marines to sail on those ships, and a decidedly limited navy. today, things have changed a l
